UPDATE - From Mon 15 Mar 2021 Glasgow City Council and the rest of mainland Scotland is still in a temporary lockdown however revised guidance means we are able to re-start our led rides with limited numbers.

Glasgow Eco Trust led cycle rides for adults as part of our Active Travel programme. The rides are open to anyone over 16 but aimed at people who are looking to improve their cycling and want to explore the local area.

All rides will be undertaken following Scottish Government guidance and Scottish Cycling guidance for organised cycling activities.

The rides will be lead by qualified, experienced cyclists and ride leaders. The rides last up to 2 hours long and are at a steady pace and you will cycle up to 10 miles around the local area. The rides aim to use the national cycle network including traffic free routes and quite roads.

On the day you will help decide where you go on the ride with some recent rides going to Lambhill Stables, Festival Park, Kelvingrove Museum and other local places. You can view some of the recent routes on our online map.

We will ask participants to sign up to the rider agreement below.
